7 Months ago Today

Just Seven months ago today our precious baby Nels was born.  This was the hour he lived in so I wanted to make a special note to celebrate his little life!  

We love you so much baby Nels and we wish you were still here with us!  You were an amazing miracle to us!  Your life was short but gave us so much joy for the few moments you held our fingers!  That is one thing I will never forget!  You holding on to my finger and not letting go.  

Baby Nels you fought so hard and did so well.  You were so beautiful.  I can't imagine why you had to go away, but I know that God had better plans for your life!  You are healed and whole in heaven!  Your new body has no problems and you can run, dance, sing and praise God with all the angels in heaven.

Right now I know you must know that we have another baby on the way.  It is another precious miracle to us!  We want you to know baby Nels that this baby can never replace you in our hearts though.  We will always have a spot for our little boy who tired so hard.

We are praying that the miracle inside right now will get to come home with us in a few months and will get to try out some of the neat things we bought and received for you.   You had so many wonderful things you never got to try... like the organic diapers and the special crib mattress with no chemicals.  We tried to get you the best because you were so special to us.  We saved all your special things with the hope that someday we would be able to have a baby come home with us.

We love you baby Nels!  We will see you again someday in heaven!


  1. Hi Kristin,

    This is so beautifully written, Kristin. It brought tears to my eyes, reading it.. It must had been a very precious moment for you, when Nels held onto your finger tightly, not letting go. I know Baby Nels is in very good hands now, with God and His angels. You will see him again in Heaven. He was so brave..

    I pray this little one in your womb will bring much joy and gladness to both you and Chris. I pray that God will watch over you and this little one daily, protecting you both. Continue to trust in His faithfulness and goodness in both your lives, Kristin and Chris. May He showers His blessings upon you both always!


  2. I think Baby Nels picked you a special little one to be his brother or sister! He hand picked that little miracle you are growing right now. Seems he did a good job of it too. Blessings for baby Nels and prayers for his sibling to be. :)
